Excuse me Speaker Pelosi, sorry to interrupt your party, but there is this problem to the south…

As the new speaker parties to celebrate her coronation:

House Warming- For Democrats and Deadheads, the Gilded Party

Despite the promised “new direction for America,” getting the money out of politics and all of that, some facts of Washington life appear immutable and eternal.

“One hundred hours to make this the most honest and open Congress in history,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared at the beginning of a history-making day — which ended last night with the Democrat from California presiding over a glitzy fundraiser open to anyone with $1,000 for a ticket.

They had waited a long time for this night to party, nibble on goat cheese ravioli with pumpkin and truffle, wipe their lips with paper napkins embossed in gold with “Speaker Pelosi January 4, 2007,” listen to former members of the Grateful Dead sing “Truckin’ ” and Tony Bennett sing “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”

“Democrats are back!” Pelosi said in her remarks during the few minutes reporters were permitted inside. “We are ready to lead, prepared to govern and determined to make you proud.”

But missing from their 100 hour agenda is Immigration reform.  That is an issue they don’t seem to be concerned with. 

Meanwhile on the border, look what is happening:

Guardsmen overrun at the Border

A U.S. Border Patrol entry Identification Team site was overrun Wednesday night along Arizona’s border with Mexico.

According to the Border Patrol, an unknown number of gunmen attacked the site in the state’s West Desert Region around 11 p.m. The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat.

The Border Patrol will not say whether shots were fired. However, no Guardsmen were injured in the incident.

The Border Patrol says the incident occurred somewhere along the 120 mile section of the border between Nogales and Lukeville. The area is known as a drug corridor. Last year, 124-thousand pounds of illegal drugs were confiscated in this area.

The Border patrol says the attackers quickly retreated back into Mexico.

Got it?  Our border was attacked by people with weapons.

I am sure they were just Deadheads trying to get to Pelosi’s party, right?

I encourage everyone to write their representatives and demand border and immigration reform.
